Mmm… So I bought a 250g bag of this for my parents for Christmas. I finally convinced Mum to let me make it for our evening, post-dinner tea (she’s utterly enarmored by Suki Tea’s divine Spiced Citrus blend, so we’ve had little else recently – it’s understandable, though). She was a little reluctant on smelling the dry leaves (though I think the powerful, grapefruit aroma is divine, she wasn’t convinced). But when I added the water and let it brew, she was quickly converted.

I really cannot stress how exceptionally citrussy and magnificently sweet this tea is. It’s just unbelievably good. I used 3 tsp in about 700 ml and brewed for no more than two minutes. The liquor was perfection – no bitterness, mouthwatering citrus astringency and a delicious, fresh-fruit sweetness.

This is still my all-time favourite Earl Grey. I’m not sure it’ll ever be surpassed.

Flavors: Citrus, Grapefruit

Boiling 2 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 24 OZ / 700 ML

I second that!

Honestly, I love it so much!

I know I’m new and an unproven swapper, but if either of you wanna try some, we have a huge (250g) bag and I’d only be too happy to send either/both of you a little sample to try!

Sure, I’d be up for a swap! I’ll message you.

Medical Student and casual tea-drinker.

I’ve been drinking tea for many years, but I’m quite new to fine, Chinese teas – I took to Steepster to learn, take recommendations and share my experiences :-)

I’m particularly keen to try lots of new teas, especially Pu Erhs and Oolongs!

I’m also happy to swap, particularly within the UK! If you see anything in my cupboard that you wanna try, please don’t be afraid to ask! Most of them I have at least 25 g of, so a 5 g sample or so will be no trouble :-)
